What you have should work, except the change the '^' into a '\n'. Also,
I would add the '?' to <.*>, to make it non-greedy. But, you don't have
to.

>> line = 'Returned-Path: <someuser at somehost>\nRecieved:'
>> s = re.search(r'Return-Path:\s<.*?>\nRecieved:')
>> s.group()
>> 'Returned-Path: <someuser at somehost>\012Received:'

return a search object that'll match that line?
